Ora just passed me the following information and photos about their Original Car Kit and Simple Car Kit for the Orange SPV:
The car kit is 149.99 Pound Sterling while the simple car kit will go for 59.98 Pound Sterling. For the car kit a professional installation is suggested as if this were not done by a qualified person it may invalidate the warranty.
Unlike it is announced on the homepage, Ora told me that it is available in the next couple of weeks. :?:
If you wonder if it will work with the Orange SPVx aka HTC Tanager - I got a clear yes from Ora which makes sense as both use the same platform with a slightly modified backside of the phones!

SPV Simple Car Kit
I, from my point of view, absolute recommend a car kit, if you plan to use your SPV more often in your car. I'm also using car kits with my car and nothing compares to it; also not a simple headset! It also includes a magnetic antenna.
If you plan to use your SPV in different cars, the Simple Car Kit might be something you should go with. Simply plug it into cigarette lighter in vehicle and its ready to go. Simple and efficient.
I think, I will go with the Simple Car Kit, as I already have a Nokia car kit installed.
Both, the Car Cit and the Simple Car Kit are available for pre-order from Ora.
